Minecraft map of the UK upgraded to include houses

A map featuring the UK made entirely of Minecraft blocks has had an upgrade.

Created by Ordnance Survey (OS), the original map re-created 224,000 sq km (86,000 sq miles) of Britain using more than 22 billion blocks.

The updated version uses 83 billion blocks, with each one representing 25m of real-world British soil, road or grass.

The Minecraft UK map is so detailed that people should be able to find their own house on it.

Ordnance Survey said it would put an interactive map on its main webpage so people could generate co-ordinates to lead them to their home on the Minecraft version.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sounds like Britain is next for a little bit of freedom. We won't let the Danes feel left out.

Houses made with cheap materials. ;)

But this is impressive, wasn't there a PC server that was trying to create Europe?

Hopefully they decide to make the US, but they will probably just make each individual state rather than actually make the full country.
